Floating and Sinking

Water was the theme this week in 1st class.  We were discussing water safety in S.P.H.E. and exploring capacity in Maths.  In Science this week 1st class experimented making boats out of play-dough.   They worked in teams to design and create a floating boat.  When the team was successful they added ‘pea passengers’ to their boats.  Every team successfully managed to get their boats to float.  Some teams even got over 200 passengers aboard.  Great fun was had by all!
